Frivolity is fun!


Each week here at JFHP, we have a girls lunch. One “girl” cooks, and the rest of us eat. It’s an awesome process. Last week, we started talking about things we are thankful for, and someone said, “Name one thing you are thankful for that is completely and totally frivolous.” 

Because I like overkill, here is a photo essay of Read the rest of this entry »

To Switzerland we go

After a lot of conversations, prayers, and emails we have decided to move to Switzerland (it’s actually Germany but don’t tell Sarah). We are very excited for this new opportunity, but the time we have spent here in Kansas City working for JESUS Film Harvest Partners has left a huge impact on our lives. We will continue to work with JFHP in any way that we can and will weave it into our new work.

We will be working for the Eurasia Communication Center (ECC) which is based in Switzerland and there we will help develop their newsletters, stories, and any other type of communication you can imagine. We are quite excited for this new opportunity and look forward to dipping our toes into a new culture. If everything goes according to plan and we get our finances in order our hope is to make the move in late March (fingers crossed).

We have no idea what God has in store for us in Europe, but we have both come to the conclusion that God has called us to serve one year at a time. We don’t know if it is because of our fear of commitment to a place or lack of a longterm calling, but we are so grateful that God is showing us the way even if it is only 1 stop at a time. Sometime after the new year we will give you all the details, but for now we would really appreciate your thoughts and prayers. We are excited.

Ask and you shall receive…a ton.

Oh good, we're not busy.

A couple of months ago, Isaac and I (and several others) began praying for opportunities to speak on behalf of JFHP. These opportunities are critical for us, because we are full-time volunteers and all of our funding comes from donations. Speaking at churches is one way we can both increase awareness of JFHP and earn some funds for living.

We were nervous, at first. We weren’t sure what the response would be to the flood of emails we sent out across the country.

Well. Read the rest of this entry »

In case you’re nosy…like me.


I don’t know why, but I have a strange obsession with work spaces. As someone who rearranged her bedroom every six months as an eight-year-old, I think I just have a fixation on spacial awareness. Or OCD. I also have a thing for furniture, which I TOTALLY blame on my Davison blood. As you can see below in my photo shoot with a desk refinishing project. Read the rest of this entry »

Sweets and Spanish in Indiana

Huge thanks to Sue Jones and the Grace Point Church of the Nazarene mission committee for throwing us a beautiful bash on Sunday afternoon. We had the opportunity to chat with people about our ministry and eat a lot of tasty cake.

Also, thank you so much to Pastor Rex Person for allowing us to speak Sunday evening, and to Pastor Javier and Annette Mondragon for letting us share on Sunday morning at the church’s bi-lingual and awesome South campus. We were sad to have such a short timeframe, but thrilled that we got the opportunity to talk about this super-duper cool place we work. Thank you!

Heart for the Lost

Finally we are able to post a video we have been working on for MONTHS. We made this video to replace an old video called Making a Difference, which basically highlighted what JFHP is all about. After initially completing it a few months ago we had to wait for notes and reedits before it could finally be shared. It is called Heart for the Lost. Enjoy!

I have now been to Iowa. For the record.

Dinner at The Big Steer in Altoona, Iowa.

Happy late birthday to Isaac! We spent his birthday in the Des Moines, Iowa, where we spoke at a children’s mission rally on Saturday, and for the lovely people at Des Moines Southside Church of the Nazarene. We also visited the zoo, fyi. What a  Read the rest of this entry »
